Mission Statement

SSUSA uses the power of soccer to help homeless men and women dramatically transform their lives. We utilize the power of sports, in this case soccer, to promote player development not merely on the field, but in every aspect of life.

Description

Strategy: SSUSA sees homelessness as the result of a breakdown of community. Rather than treating homelessness as a series of individuals with problems, we form and foster, through sports, a positive community for people who are homeless. SSUSA then uses this team platform to create a training curriculum of job preparation, life skills, and other specialized services, ultimately connecting participants directly to jobs, education, and housing.

Values: Teamwork, Community, Education, Empowerment

Results: Our results speak for themselves. Street Soccer USA directly impacts the players we serve.

  • 91%of program participants have learned essential life skills that have led to life-changing outcomes in health, education, housing and employment.

  • 75% of street soccer players are connected to jobs and housing, complete a rehabilitation program, or further their education within a year of joining the program.

  • 20 cities across the United States have Street Soccer USA programs
